Covid-19 vaccine hesitancy and acceptance delay is an unprecedented challenge for concerned authorities. Existing studies lack the investigation about public vaccination acceptance, specifically for children. In this study, we surveyed the adult population in the UK to determine the diversity in public perception and acceptance of Covid-19 vaccination specifically for the children, among different sociodemographic groups. Statistical results and intelligent clustering outcomes indicate significant relationships between sociodemographic diversity and vaccination acceptance for children and their families. Acceptability for children is significantly dependent on ethnicity (p = 3.7e-05), age group, and gender, where only 47% of participants show willingness towards children’s vaccination. Primary dataset in this study, along with the experimental outcomes, might be useful for public awareness and policy makers towards better preparation for future epidemics as well as working globally to combat the ongoing Covid-19 variations while running effective vaccination campaigns in the identified sociodemographic groups.
